It’s an awesome opportunity for our members, they can start getting access to a bigger community of other startups and entrepreneurs working in different cities, as well as if they start to travel they have home bases around the country.
Co-working spaces are great because they give rise to communities. Working home alone has some small advantages (you can always wear underwear to work), but there is no opportunity to see people in similar situations experience the same trials you do: you don’t see others fail like you fail, work like you work, or hopefully, succeed like you succeed.
The startup scene is flourishing in Utah and co-working spaces are playing a vital role. Startups get office space, learn from people with vast experience and knowledge, and then help those beneath them as they ascend to positions of power. Instead of isolation, startups are allowed to participate in a thriving community that sustains itself through this cycle of learning, growing, and giving back. The circle of life is complete.
So what is the only thing better than being a part of one community? Being part of many. That’s why DeskHub, a network of shared entrepreneurial workspaces across the United States, has acquired SLC-based Holodeck.
“One of the things we were excited about Holodeck to begin with, we were creating a mini ecosystem of entrepreneurs, freelancers, startups and whatnot,” said John Might, Holodeck co-founder. “This is taking that concept but more on a national level, that’s the goal of DeskHub.”
With co-working spaces already located in San Diego, Scottsdale, and Atlanta, DeskHub is looking to expand into other cities that boast a strong collection of startup talent. As we all know, Salt Lake City is a logical destination.
“It’s an awesome opportunity for our members, they can start getting access to a bigger community of other startups and entrepreneurs working in different cities, as well as if they start to travel they have home bases around the country,” said Daniel Might, Holodeck co-founder.
Being part of a community, whether it’s local or national, is always a special thing. The brothers Might understand this, so don’t worry about the acquisition changing anything that you’ve come to know and love about Holodeck.
“We love what we’re doing here, we love working with startup companies, so we’re staying on board to help guide this co-working space, so we can keep growing it and turning it into a hub for the tech community in Salt Lake City,” said Daniel.
